2. Capacity

Depending on the size of your household, frequency and habit of doing laundry, choose your preferred capacity. if you have a large household, choose a larger capacity washing machine. If you have smaller household, including children where clothes are washed separately more than once per day, consider a smaller capacity washer.

3. Spin Speed

Washing machines are responsible for not only for rinsing the laundry but also adequately spin-drying the laundry at the end of the wash cycle. The spin speed is determined by the revolutions per minute (rpm) which represents how fast a washing machine’s drum rotates during the spin cycle. The higher the spin RPM on a washing machine, the faster the drum turns and the drier the clothes at the end of the cycle. The drier the clothes come out of the machine, the faster they dry on the line and in the tumble dryer.
